Over the last few months I've been trying to wrap my head around how I would go about displaying my work for our degree show. Their are lots of different elements that come to mind. For the first time I feel compelled to incorporate a live element into the work, I want to be physically present in the work more than I have before. There's something much more exciting about performing to the audience as the work still feels like its alive rather than still and stagnate.
My initial instincts are to have 2 parts to the show. First being the space when I am present performing on the privet view and the second when I'm not in the space. I am still very unsure of how exactly it will work out, and to begin with I found this really exciting but as I became more stressed and pressure rises I tended to doubt it a bit. As far as the live performance goes, I want to somehow incorporate my work with the night vision camera into the work. Possibly having the audience in the room with me in the dark and have them view the monitor with a live stream of my performance in the space using a night vision camera? or performing in the space with a very dim spot light, I want to capture this nocturnal creature seance, darkness reduces our reliance on our sense of sight and allows us to plug in to more instinctual senses such as smell and touch. I am drawn to the night vision camera as I feel the monitor way in which it records makes me appears even less human then in full light, as my body and the cones blend even more seamlessly. The monitor might create this sense of distance between myself and the audience but this is counteracted by the fact that they share the small space with me and the can hear me moving in the space with them.
